Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot Importers in Ireland, has unveiled a new light commercial vehicle. The refined new Peugeot 3008 Commercial, based on the current 3008 Crossover Active 1.6 HDi 115bhp passenger car version, offers a large load volume of up to 1241 dm3 or 1604 litres. It qualifies for 5.9% APR low-cost finance and comes with a 3-year warranty. On sale now from €25,095 plus delivery or from €20,964 ex-VAT, a second version comes equipped with Peugeot’s patented Grip Control technology and retails from €25,345 plus delivery or from €21,173 ex-VAT.
Adopting the same existing front face, body and elegant cabin and retaining all of the comfort and standard equipment of the Peugeot 3008 Active model, the new 3008 Commercial comes with a bulkhead fitted and rear parking aid, electric folding mirrors, automatic headlamps and wipers, front fog lamps, cruise control + speed limiter, LED daytime running lights, front electric windows, Bluetooth, air conditioning, spare wheel, 17” alloy wheels (16” with Mud & Snow tyres for the Grip Control option), leather steering wheel + gearstick lever, 6 airbags, Hill Assist and an aluminium finish Adventure Pack.
Optional Grip Control, priced from €250, gives excellent control of the vehicle’s traction on all road surfaces. The driver operates a simple mode selector to choose from four settings: standard road, snow, sand or off mode. Combined with the Mud & Snow tyres, the system varies the amount of slip and traction to the wheels to ensure the driver pulls off with little drama, even on snow and ice.
Colin Sheridan, Sales and Marketing Director at Gowan Distributors, Peugeot Importers in Ireland said, “The new Peugeot 3008 Commercial is an ideal choice for professionals seeking a stylish vehicle that offers flexibility and ample load capacity to meet growing business demands. The welcome arrival of the new van coincides with a very strong performance from our van range in 2015, when we’ve seen a 51% jump in registrations across our Partner, Expert and Boxer vans. The new 3008 Commercial will undoubtedly further strengthen our range in 2015 and beyond.”
